"Chocolate Donut" -- oil on canvas 6x6" -- Margie Guyot
OK, a little break from the cupcakes! My friend, Gail DeMeyer, came over to see my studio and she brought a huge box of donuts from Johann's Bakery in Petoskey. Egads! We OD'd on coffee and donuts. She had a gay old time, photographing my chickens.
Then she watched me paint "Butter Finger", another of the cupcakes from Simplycupcakes of Traverse City.
After Gail left, I grabbed this chocolate donut and painted a view of it. The sun was out (a rarity here in winter) and I loved the shadow pattern and the glare on the frosting. When finished, I took the donut straight out to the chicken coop. No more donuts for me!!!! The chickens were quite thrilled.
